A diagnosis of a mental health issue or disability can come as a relief when it validates or expands your understanding of your child. It gives your family a place to start creating a support plan. You may also wonder about how much to say and how to say it to your child in a way that doesn’t harm their self-worth. In addition, when others in your family or community display symptoms of these challenges, children will often make up explanations that are not accurate. In all these cases, children will benefit from straightforward information delivered with a compassionate point of view. A little bit of preparation can go a long way in helping your child cope well and strengthen their resilience.
